I have to submit report on oondltione In Yellowstone
Rational Park covering the month of July, 1919, as follows:
The month of July was unusually hot and dry. There
was but .80 inch of rainfall, whioh was .38 inch less than nor-
mal; and the showera that came were so light that they were of
but little real benefit. The monthly mean temperature was 64.8,
whloh was 3.3 degrees warmer than normal for July. This general
condition, following similar conditions in June, made it extreme-
ly hard to keep the dust down by sprinkling, and added greatly
to the danger of starting forest fires by carelessness on the
part of travelers. But by unusual effort the roads were kept
in such condition that complaints of dust and roughness were
few. A great number of small fires were extinguished, and sev-
eral of them gained considerable headway, threatening at times
to be disastrous; but they were finally subdued without at any
time interfering with travel In the park.
As will be noted by the statistics on travel given
under III (d) of this report, the travel for the month of
July, and for the season, has broken all records, \7hile there
were some complaints of poor roads loading to the park, espec-
ially from the west between Ashton, Idaho, and the western en-
trance, and some of lack of accommodations for private motor
tourists along the route and in the park, these have not bean
serious enough to affect the travel to the park to any extent
and tourists are continuing to arrive, both by rail and in pri-
vate oars, at an unprecedented rate. The public is being well
oared for, talcing Into consideration the fact that every hotel,
camp, and camping site are crowded.
Labor an! supply markets.
Serious trouble has not been encountered in securing
sufficient labor for the carrying on of improvement and mainten-
ance worlc In the park, though it has beon necessary to keep in
touch with several employment bureaus to keep our crews filled
up. But the transportation, hotel, and camping companies have
had considerable trouble in keeping their employees, and strikes
among them have been threatened on several occasions. In some
oases they have had to increase wages or make other concessions
to employees to keep business running.
Supplies are in some oases difficult to get for quick
deliveries, and the prices are high. Che amount of work accom-
plished is neoessarlly smaller on account of the high prices*
therefore the appropriations based on estlmatos made under condi-
tions of previous years are not so effective aB formerly.
On July 1st there were 288 employees under this office;
on July 31st there were 273. Below is given a list of employees,
with class of work performed by each, exclusive of such temporary
workers as laborers, teamsters, truck drivers, cooks, etc.

III. WORK OOMPLETHDt
(a) Construction of Physloal Improvements.
Bo construction work of consequence was dono during the
month. However, tha contractor for the under-pass bridge near
Sylran Pass at tha and of tha month waa on tha ground making pre-
parations for the beginning of work.
(») Maintenance and Repair of Physical Improvamanta.
In general, the road and bridge work consisted of light
repairs. The nature of this work was mostly light grader work
and filling of rata and chuok holes by small crews-- with particular
attention to the main belt line. All roads have been repaired,
with the exception of the road south of 3nake River and the Cooke
City road east of the Yellowstone River, but thaae roads will soon
be repaired by o~ewo working in these directions.
Due to the extreme dryness and heavy travel, the roads
became rutted and very dusty. Where conditions were the worst
graders removed the dust, giving the sprinklers an opportunity
to control the situation. This proved the only method of suc-
cessfully getting rid of the dust; and, with tha aid of tha rains
of July 29th and 30th, the roads are greatly improved.
after the rain, as soon as conditions would permit,
drags were need on the dirt roads.
All sprinkler tanks have been repaired and are In use
where water is available.
Tery few bridge repairs have been made. The long steel
bridge across the Gardiner River, two nllea from Mammoth on the
Cooke City road, was painted, and alao the steel bridge across the
Yellowstone on the Cooke City road. Many small wooden culverts
have had minor repaira. One 20-foot span log bridge was rebuilt
at the Upper Basin station.
There are three larger maintenance orewa, each of about
30 men, doing improvement in various parts of the park. One crew
at Horris cocnenoed graveling the first mile north of Horrls, on
the Horrla-Hamoth road, on July 26th. A deposit of gravel was
looated which will prove better road surfacing than the old pit.
Maintenance of roads In the immediate vicinity necessitated de-
ferring the graveling until the latter part of the month.
The work of widening the road and filling over culverts
on the Dunravsn Pass road will be delayed until the firat part of
August, ovine to the difficult task of moving the steam shovel
over the narrow road and old wooden bridges.
The east entrance road is in very good condition, and a
crew is now employed in backfilling- new bridges and repairing
washouts to o ribbing ooourring in previous years.
The work of dosing and sealing up the two ports in
the Gardiner Aroh for a checking station is about 50 per cent
The shops at headquarters were mainly occupied in
placing sprinkler tanks on the two 5-ton trucks, and repairing
machinery in use.
The small crew with pack train engaged in clearing out s\ ,
and making slight repairs to trails worksri during the month from ,..»<**■
the Cody mad near Lake Butte, south to the Upper Yellowstone,
over the Upper Yellowstone Trail, thence west to Snake River Sta-
tion over the South Boundary Trail, ol earing out trees and making
. such slight repairs te grades and corduroys as are necessary to
4 make the trails passable for pack trains. Total mileage covered,
about 115 miles, after July 21st, this orew and pack train were
used to assist in fighting a forest fire near the southwest corner
of the park.
A seoond small orew under Park Hanger Henry Anderson
was organised for trail repairs and maintenance, on July 19th, and
from that date to the end of July went over and repaired the Wil-
low Park-Riverside Trail, and the Rivers ide-Pountain Trail, a
/"} -*otal,-of about 54 miles. •'
. A special laborer was employed throughout the month
keeping the field at the northern entrance watored^1Bt±-the pros-
pects seem good for procuring a owp "of hay to be Out for wild
animals. Another man irrigated the fields at the Buffalo Farm,
and another worked at Yancey's watering the meadows in that sec-
tion with a view to cutting as much hay as possible, for winter
use. A small orew was employed at the Buffalo Farm, getting out
poets and repairing the fences around the lower buffalo pasture*
Trail work, and in several instances road work, was in-
terfered with on account of forest fires, as it was necessary to
take men from any source where they could be prooured to hold the
firee within bounds* /
A small orew with a light truck wan employed daring
the month in cleaning public camps and other sanitary work,
hat this worse was ale© Interfered with on several occasions to
take care of forest fires.

As will be noted from the inclosed Chief Ranger's
Monthly Travel Reports, a total of 24,990 tourists visited the
park (Airing the month, as compared with 6,580 in June, 1919,
and 8,084 in July, 1918. The inclosed Travel Reports show tho
number of people altering the various gateways in privately
owned automobiles and by other means of private conveyance
for this month, last month, July of last year, and during this
season to the end of July.
Below is a statement of the paid privately owned auto-
mobiles entering the park by the different gateways, given by

7. WORK BEOOTj
She only projeot of import anoe, outside of the regular
maintenance and repair work, on which work was actually begun
during the month was the graveling of about 5 miles of road,
beginning near Morris on the Norrls-lfcmmoth road. This work
was not begun until the latter part of the month, and accor-
dingly but little has boon accomplished as yet.

Till. COST 0? OPBRATION:
Dae to the remoteness from headquarters of several of
the crews encaged on maintenance and Improvement work, it has
been found impracticable at this early date to have a complete
reoord of the cost of maintaining the parte during July. It Is
hoped, however, that the difficulties in connection with obtain-
ing such a reoord may be overcome, and that auoh a statement can
be incorporated in future monthly reports.
IX. OTHKR XASnOtS 07 IKTKREST:
All animals seen were reported in good condition, and
there is still plenty of good gracing in the mountains. The
prospeots for a winter supply of hay are not very good, and hay
purchased In the market will be very blgh. Arrangements are
being made to cut as much hay as possible in the park for the
tarns buffalo, wild animals, and for domestic stock. A small
band of cow elk noted on Mary Mountain had with them 75 per cent
of their own number in oalvee. "lid animals, including elk,
deer, antelope, and bears, were frequently soon by travelers.
Bears were plontlful around all hotel and camp dumps, and much
trouble is constantly experienced by our rangers In keeping people
from feeding them. Four bears whloh had become dangerous had
to be killed during the month.
Many tourists enjoyed the fishing along the roads, and
a few who were anxious to get good fishing took time to visit
places remote from the regular tourist routes, where excellent
fishing can be had. Dr. H. M. Smith, United States Pish Com-
missioner, has been In the park since July 8th, engaged in aoare-
ful examination of the conditions as relating to culture of fish
and stooking park waters, and has been assisted in this work to
the greutest extent practicable by this offloe. Notices wore
posted stopping fishing for the time being in the waters in the
southwest corner of the park, on July 22nd, on account of a for-
est fire in that violnlty, started in tho very dry tinber by a
party of fishermen.
Tame Buffalo Herd: A total of 81 calves have been born
in the herd this season, end there are prospeots of still a few
more. This makes a present total of 410 animals in the herd.
The main herd has been kept on lit. Horrls and other heights
daring the Banner, as feed in the valleys Is short and it is
essential to save what there is for winter forage. At least one-
half of the tourists visiting Uaranoth go to see the show herd
kept here for that purpose.
Arrests and violations of the law.
Violation of tiie park: regulations, especially those
pertaining to use of the roads, and oarelessness In regard to
starting fires by leaving oarap fires burning and by discarding
matches , oigar end cigarette stubs, were noBerous. Hany of
these relative to speeding and oarelessness In driving automo-
biles were reported and correoted. Complaints that drivers
violated the speed regulations and those relative to turning
out, sounding horns, etc, were many, especially against the
drivers of the passenger oars of the Yellowstone Park Trans-
portation Company. Sometimes drivers were let off with a warn-
ingi sometimes they were peremptorily discharged; and in the
meet flagrant oases, where evidence was sufficient, they were
taken before the United States Commissioner and tried. This
method of handling them, together with the constant effloiemt
patrols of rangers on motorcycles, has had its effect, and during
the past few days violations have been less frequent. The follow-
ing Is a list of arrests made during the month of July:

On July 30th one of tho lQ-paaaongor automobiles of the
Yellowstone l'ark Transportation Company overturned with a party
of seven paaaengara, about ij- mllos oouth from I'.adlson Junction.
Throe of the seven ocoupanta wars badly bruiaed. Tho oaao was
oarefully investigated, and It was evident that the aooldent waa
a direct result of faat driving around a double curve. The driver
waa triad before tha United Statea Cootniss loner on August lat and
2nd, and fined ClOO and coata.
Every effort waa made by the rangor forco to caution
all partlea against careless use of fire, but notwithstanding
this there were about 100 oamp fires left by tourists which were
put out by rangers; and, in addition to theee, there were quite
a number put out by tourist a and o there in the park. In nine
oaaea the flree got a considerable start, and it coat considerable
money and much effort to hold them fron spreading to the danger-
ous point. Thla, however, was accomplished, and no serious re-
sults have boon had from foroat firea. Recent relna have soaked
the foroata until the danger la not ao great. The following
ahowa the location, date and general extent of the nine firea
that threatened to become serious »

A large number of oomplalnts wero filed, most of them
of a verbal naturo, but this muat be expected with the moat un-
uaual amount of travel. Corrections were applied in all oases
where possible. The basis of the moat of the oomplalnts were
as follows: (1) The orowded condition of the hotel and oamp
at the Canyon, where it haa been neoeaaary for the management
to turn people away many timea for lack of room to oar* for them.
This oan only be avoided by the furnishing of additional facil-
It las at Canyon by enlarging the hotel and oaxap, or by opening
the Lake Hotel and camp, which would take much of the congestion
from the Canyon. It la now too late in the aeaaon to do this.
(2) The disregard by drivers of oars of the Yellowstone Park
Transportation Company for private oars and the rules of the
road. The paragraph in automobile rules and regulations which
gives the "Yellow oars" the right-of-way under certain conditions
is constantly misinterpreted by the drivers; and they have been
so inconsiderate of other oars that they have gained a reputation
for miles around. They have been checked so far as possible
by warnings from our ranger force, and by trial before the United
States Commissioner where evidence was sufficient, and the con-
ditions have somewhat Improved. The matter of correcting faults
which come out in connection with the complaints of poor sorvloe
or insufficient service at hotels and camps, of minor infractions
of the regulations by drivers, and other public oervioe which re-
quires the hiring of a considerable force of employees, is more
or less hampered by the present independent attitude of "help"
in general, whioh is mush worse here from the fact that they have
to be brought in from a distance, and the employers are more or
less at their mercy with orowds of guests to be oared for.
Avoidants and Casualtlos.
Accidents wore few considering the number of tourists
who visited the park during the month. Some of the most serious
accidents are enumerated as follows:
A small boy with the Massachusetts Porostry Association
broke through the formation at Upper Geyser Basin, near Giantess
Geyser, where there are several danger signs, on July 3th; and
was quite severely, though not dangerously, burned around the
James Baxter Hughes, the four-year-old son of Mr. R.
H. Hughes, of Gueydon, La., backed into a small pool of hot wa-
ter at Thumb of Yellowstone Lake on July 17th, and was so badly
burned that he died of the shook during the following night.
He was traveling with his grand-parents*
A ford oar overturned into Tower Creak near the bridge
on July 30th, from careless driving, occupants were severely
shocked, but otherwise not seriously injured.
The Camping Company's truck overturned on the road be-
tween Gardiner and Manaoth on July 29th, without injury to the
The Yellowstone Parte Transportation Company's oil
tank oar, a 5-ton White, turned over on the road about two miloa
north from Norrio on July 29th. No injuries to the driver re-
A ten-passenger oar belonging to the Transportation
Company was turned over about 1-1/4 miles south from Madison
Junction on July 30th, and three of the seven passengers were
rather severely injured. This happened through fault of the
driver speeding around a double ourve. Be was tried for viola-
tion of park regulations and fined $100 and costs.
The same evening one of the drivers took a ten-passen-
ger oar from the garage at Upper Basin and took a load of em-
ployees "Joy-riding". While speeding the car left the road,
ran into a telegraph polo, broke down a tree, and broke the arm
of the ohef from old Faithful Inn. This man was aunnarily dis-
